Remarks of Ricardo Anzaldua, Executive Vice President and General Counsel - MetLife, Inc.

Thank you, Jerry, and congratulations to Alison Watson on becoming the new Chancellor of the Exchequer Club. I hope your new position does not cause Northwestern Mutual to be deemed systemically important.
I am pleased to have this opportunity to speak to the members of the Exchequer Club ─ including my colleague Heather Wingate, who is head of global government relations for MetLife and a Club member.
In my remarks today, I will ─

 Provide some background on MetLife;
 Describe ─ in general terms ─ our interactions with FSOC;
 Discuss our legal challenge to our designation as a systemically important company; and
 Propose an alternative to the FSOC designation process.
